Announcement

The Annual Meeting held on 1/25/2015 was a great success with over 120 members and guests attended. This is an event for CMCNY to review its business and for members to share their experiences. Many members took the opportunity to renew their membership for 2015. We had a 20 courses buffet lunch prepared by our chefs. Thank you for all the chefs and volunteers for organizing the event.
This year marks the 30th Anniversary of CMCNY. Mr. Ta-hoa Chen who has been a member for over 25 years and inspired many people into long distance hiking, was awarded the Honor Member. We are also taking this special occasion to thank all the members, trip leaders, volunteers and professionals who have volunteered their time and talents to CMCNY. We are offering each of them a custom made "30th Anniversary" stainless steel cup to show our appreciation.
Members Shui Kei Ng, Alex Wei, Bert Santos and Cherry Lau have served 4 years in the Board and will be relieving their duties. We are grateful for their dedication and service and wishing for their continuing contribution in CMCNY. An election was conducted to fill the vacant positions in the Board. Steve Huang was re-elected to the Board after a two year term. Harry Chen, Jin Sun, Annie Yeung and Hong Huang were elected with majority votes. Together with Chung Leung and Daniel Do, they will make up the seven members of the Board of Directors for the year 2015.
The Annual Meeting marks the beginning of a new year for CMCNY. We look forward for your participation and enjoying the activities in the new year.
